Transformation + evolving is a never ending cycle, these past couple of months have been heavy for me. I am yet again discovering new parts of me, I am bringing to the surface every element and finding the balance with each one of them - anxiety attacks, a restless mind and moments of sadness rise up. Although I am beyond grateful for the endless beautiful opportunities life and the universe has given me, I am only human and these emotions and tensions that rise up are part of this vortex of life. Everything that rises up, must go down, and everything that goes down must rise up, that is life bringing us balance. It is in those moments that I appreciate life itself even more and I find comfort in the arms of my mother, nature and breath itself. To be alive is a beautiful thing, mama earth loves us and heals our hearts through nature, with food that nourishes the layers of our being, with animal totems to remind us of how powerful we are and teaches us that just like the seasons and the moon phases we are always transforming+evolving.
Where are my busy-bodies at who avoid sitting with their emotions?! You all know that someone... That someone was me to a T for years. Being busy and productive and was my jam. It gave me a sense of being seen as “accomplished,” which allowed me to feel worthy. But it was only a temporary feeling and it was never enough.
I was running on the subconscious program that your worth and value was tied to what you did and how much you did, rather than who you were at your core.
This old and outdated story led me to become addicted to stress and to staying busy as a means of feeling worthy. It worked, but it was a temporary fill for a much deeper void.
What everyone saw on the surface was a highly polished and accomplished person, but behind that facade, I was an anxious and stressed out mess that couldn’t sit with myself.
I had just thought I was an anxious person for most of my life. I had NO idea that I was in a constant state of numbing and disconnecting from myself because I had trauma and trapped emotions.
Staying in this hyper-drive mode led me into a state of adrenal exhaustion. My body was forcing me to just “be” so that I would start sitting with myself and facing my emotions.
It took so. much. work. to stay open to sitting with my emotions. In the beginning, I was hit with wave after wave of them.
After I realized my emotions weren’t going to kill me (I was terrified of them in the beginning), I began to see that each time I shed tears, a part of me that had been stuck in space from trauma and conditioning, was set free.
I eventually began to crave the feeling of being set free and set out to do this inner work on myself intentionally.
As a result, I unlocked my true self, shed the facade, and took the walls down that were surrounding my heart. It has set me free and opened me up in so many ways.
If you are still running on this subconscious program, let me know down in the comments below.
It IS possible to get unstuck. Feeling = Healing.

“I was interested in transcendence from a very early age. I was interested in what was over there, what was behind life. So when I had my first communion I was very disappointed. I had expected something amazing and surprising and spiritual. Instead all I got was a bicycle. That wasn't what I was after at all.” ~Anselm Kiefer~
You made beautiful music together, but how many other people were in "the band?!" 🔮🖤🔮 Someone here has removed themselves from a third or fourth party situation, whether you removed yourself or the other person, there is a feeling of sadness and abandonment. While this may not have been an easy decision, retreating saved everyone involved from more sorrow in the long run. This person misses you, I get the feeling they didnt know what they had til it was gone. With that being said, go within and seek the answers to what or who it is you want. If the other person has dragged you into a complicated situation, they may still have playboy/playgirl tendencies 🖤
Being grateful is a powerful tool. It changes our perception of everything around us. It’s easy to be grateful when everything is coming up Millhouse. But, being grateful even when situations are not ideal is key. When things are rough, ask the universe what it’s trying to teach you. Is it patience, humility, compassion or grace? It could be a number of things. Just being grateful for the unknown lesson it’s trying to teach you is enough. Then watch how things start to change in your favour.
Also, by waking up everyday and expressing what you are grateful for will set up your day for success. It doesn’t matter how small it is.
Just be grateful! .
Heal yourself and you will heal the world.
Be mindful 🙂
I really want to make my room look as jungle like as possible. Plants somehow always make me happy :)

How do we meet the people that fulfill our lives? How do we meet our people- our soul family and our soulmates? We know the people who’s experiences here on this earth were destined to intertwine with our own. We feel it when we’re with them- we sense it in those moments we met. Every decision is a path- there are thousands of routes for us to take everyday of our lives. These decisions- these little moments where we walk a certain way instead of another- they lead us to these experiences. They lead us to this very day, this very breath, this very moment. They lead us to these people. These families we create for ourselves. The families and the love that follow us into each lifetime.
